5 MAKE LEMONADE CROWNS
From the opening pages of The Room Mate Kendall Ryan ensnares readers by dropping them into the falling action of the story, and she keeps them engaged with the hot and steamy Dr. Roth.
Cannon Roth! Cannon Roth! Cannon freaking Roth!!! I love this man. He may very well be my favorite Kendall Ryan hero, because he has it all. He is smart, kind, compassionate, loyal, chivalrous, and on top of all of that, he is good in sack with dirty mouth. Seriously, the stuff of dreams! I also love that he seems to have the perfect balance between working hard and being serious with his profession, yet being laid back and fun when he isn’t there. Everything about this character seriously turned me into a puddle of goo, and readers are going to absolutely love him.
Paige, the older sister’s best friend, the forbidden fruit, the girl Cannon Roth has crushed on since his teen years, is searching for more, a connection. Left by many, Paige, literally has her best friend, Allie and Allie’s family. This is her roadblock, her struggle to determine if she should go after her desires and the man she craves, or stifle what she wants in honor of hr friendship. Her internal conflict makes readers sympathize with her struggle, as it is clear she doesn’t want to hurt the people she loves most. She also is gun shy with expressing her feelings, as is he, but readers will desire for her to gain some fortitude and lay it all out on the table.
From the prologue, readers will be sucked into this story. I had to re-read it, because I was sure I read it wrong, and then I was left with a million questions. Who? Why? What? Of course, this plot construction is a genius move on Ms. Ryan’s part and guarantees immediate buy-in from the reader. She continues, though, to gain your attention with the chemistry that sizzles between Paige and Cannon and the on-the-edge-of-your-seat will they, won’t they quandary. Every single time the reader thinks one of them is going to bite the bullet something happens, and while it should be frustrating, it isn’t. Everything that happens is a natural progression of the plot and is an authentic representation of what could really happen. Oh, and the interesting prologue provides the perfect impetus not only to get this couple in gear, but to make both of them come to some realizations they have been hiding from. It is the perfect driving force for the progression of plot! At the end, Kendall Ryan makes sure to give readers the HEA they want and the characters deserve.
Kendall Ryan delivers, yet again, another fun, romantic, and steamy friends to lovers romance, and just like Cannon claims, one time with him and you will be in love! Be warned! Once you open this book, you won’t be able to walk away from Dr. Roth, so make sure you clear your schedule!
ARC received in exchange for an honest review.
The last time I saw my best friend’s younger brother, he was a geek wearing braces. But when Cannon shows up to crash in my spare room, I get a swift reality check.
Now twenty-four, he’s broad shouldered and masculine, and so sinfully sexy, I want to climb him like the jungle gyms we used to enjoy. At six-foot-something with lean muscles hiding under his T-shirt, a deep sexy voice, and full lips that pull into a smirk when he studies me, he’s pure temptation.
Fresh out of a messy breakup, he doesn’t want any entanglements. But I can resist, right?
I’m holding strong until the third night of our new arrangement when we get drunk and he confesses his biggest secret of all: he’s cursed when it comes to sex. Apparently he’s a god in bed, and women instantly fall in love with him.
I’m calling bullshit. In fact, I’m going to prove him wrong, and if I rack up a few much-needed orgasms in the process, all the better.
There’s no way I’m going to fall in love with Cannon. But once we start…I realize betting against him may have been the biggest mistake of my life.
